Universal Studios in plans to celebrate Lunar New Year in style


16th of February will be celebrated as Lunar New year. Lunar New Year is the first day of a secular, sacred, or other year whose months are coordinated by the cycles of the moon.

And to mark this Lunar year, Universal Studios Hollywood plans to celebrate Lunar New Year from February 10 to 25 with some help from DreamWorks’ Kung Fu Panda characters.

Attractions at the California theme park will include a new Dragon Warrior Training show, the opening of a replica
Mr. Ping’s Noodle Shop and the return of a Mandarin-speaking Transformers’ Megatron.

Universal Plaza, a polygon-shaped piazza in the middle of the park, will house the activities complete with red Chinese lanterns, plum blossom Wishing Trees and the 12 zodiac animal signs.

Based on the Kung Fu Panda franchise, a new stage performance entitled Dragon Warrior Training will also be held at the DreamWorks’ Kung Fu Panda Jade Palace performance stage.

The experience includes an interactive martial arts demonstration performed by lead character Po and veteran DreamWorks animators will show off techniques used to draw the characters from the franchise.

Last June, Universal Studios announced the 2018 launch of a DreamWorks Theater attraction at the Hollywood park. The theatre that is created in partnership with Universal Creative and DreamWorks Artists will initially focus on a Kung Fu Panda multi-sensory adventure with state-of-the-art projection mapping and LED lighting effects.
